president alan levine, who joined the company just two years ago. levine says the allegations are coming from disgruntled employees. and if they were true, he said, it would be reflected in the admissions data. he says admission rates haven't changed in four years, and are near or below industry averages. the allegations have to do with you taking people who shouldn't be admitted to the hospital and putting them in the hospital. >> alan levine: those allegations are absolutely wrong. >> kroft: h.m.a. doesn't set quotas for hospital admissions. >> levine: no. >> kroft: h.m.a. never told emergency rooms that they needed to admit a certain percentage of people that came in? >> levine: we tell them collaboratively that our goal is to make sure the patient gets in the right setting. it... we don't want a patient going home that should be admitted. we don't want a patient admitted that shouldn't be admitted. >> kroft: i've got some documents here from durant, oklahoma. we showed levine this physician performance review from the h.m.a. hospital in durant, oklahoma, which had been given to us by

as a member of that committee, as has the chair, and to express my thanks to chairman levin as someone who began his time on capitol hill as a committee counsel, full committee counsel on the house side many years ago and then spent five years in the pentagon, often working over here on the hill, and now six years in the senate, i can say that senator levin is a five-star committee chair. he is what one always hopes for when he or she serves on a committee in the united states congress. it has been a -- a true honor. this committee is an example of how committee work should be undertaken in the united states congress. people like to say that this is the 51st consecutive year that we have been able to -- hopefully -- we've been able to pass a defense authorization bill. i would suggest to my colleagues that perhaps that example should be used more broadly in this body. i think it would make for good governance if it did. i also would like to express my appreciation to senator mccain, the senator from arizona. i have known him as a colleague and a friend for more than 30 years. he comes from

.i.v. is a retro virus, it can also insert its genetic material into selected t4 cells. alexandra levine: and as long as that t4 cell lives, the virus is living also inside of it. we used to think that if we can just keep the virus hidden in the dna there, then eventually those t4 cells will die out and we might be able to cure this. but it turns out that those long-lived "latently infected" t4 cells in which the virus is there, hidden in the dna, they may live 20 or 30 years, and therefore, the ability to really cure this infection may not be possible. ronald mitsuyasu: so it's a very insidious virus that attacks human immune cells, integrates within the cell itself, and then replicates within those cells and then goes on to attack additional immune cells. and the terrifying thing about h.i.v. is that... the patient really does not have an immune response to the virus, and the virus kind of makes sure that it won't be attacked by actually destroying immune cells. at the end of about 10 years, the body just can't keep up anymore, and as the virus infects more and more t4 cells and destro

today, all democrats, from the president on the tarmac to carl levin the senator to all those members of congress, all meeting to try to talk the governor off this ledge, it was not always like this about union rights in michigan or anywhere, but specifically in michigan. it was not always a democrats versus republican thing. the specific union rights that rick snyder and the republicans in the legislature seem to be about to strip in that state were enshrined in michigan law in the first place by this guy, former michigan governor george romney, father of mitt romney, revered republican figure, and frankly, revered figure in michigan state politics. governor rick snyder's office is in a building called the george w. romney building. they hold him in high regard there. congressman sander levin recounted the story today at the "washington post" of how union rights were enshrined by governor romney. congressman levin met with governor romney in the 1960s when mr. levin was a state senator. he says, quote, we sat there for an hour. the governor was in a rocking chair with his blue sweate

over right to work, we're joined by michigan congressman sander levin, a democrat. he met today with governor snyder and with the president. and republican state senator john prose, who is one of the sponsors of right-to-work legislation. representative levin, i want to start with you because you met with two of the key people who who have been debating this today, governor snyder, president obama. what were you there to say? >> to say this is a very divisive effort. michigan is already open for business. we added 30,000 auto jobs since the recession began. already we're growing. this would terribly disrupt the pattern of labor-management relations that has really evolved very effectively for the last decade-and-a-half. it's deeply divisive. secondly i want the record to be very clear. there is no requirement today that people pay union dues or belong to a union. what the law says is this. if a majority of employees vote to be represented, if they decide to do that and if the employer decides to agree that there can be a requirement that people pay their fair share for represent

think that senators like carl levin, richard lugar, who is now leaving, john kerry, john mccain, and some of the younger senators i think we will see in the coming years that they step up to be excellent senators. we're not short of capable people there. the problem is that the senate, what i call the senate ecosystem, sun healthy. it's the hyper partisanship that's holding us back and the efforts of people like the ones i mentioned, or like olympia snowe, who announced her retirement and is retiring. ?iewn fortunately. >> they're hampered by the fact they work very hard, and then the hyper partisanship prevents the accomplishments. >> but are there any sorts of maybe mechanical policy senate rule changes that could actually help bring or help restore that balance? >> well, i think -- i actually do believe we need to change the senate rules. i think we have to get back to a time when filibusters were real and rare. i think these holds that go on indefinitely and block nominations and legislative action is unacceptable. we have seen -- we have seen on struck shun used as a p

levin called the governor out in an op-ed in the descroit free press writing what the governor is unleashing is a right to freeload which will reduce resources for effective representation, increase tensions among employees and sow ill will just when we need cooperation to grow the economy for the benefit of all. unless the governor stands up to the special interests that persuaded him to make a 180-degree turn on this issue so fundamental to the fabric of our state, he will engender a michigan divided. joining me now is ranking member of the house ways and means committee and representative of michigan's 12th district, congressman, welcome and thank you for that powerful op-ed today going right at the governor for the flip-flop. first, explain the flip-flop. what happened and why? >> well, he had said it wasn't on his agenda. and then he got pressure from the radical right and essentially he turned 180 degrees. and it was more than a flip-flop. it was a dangerous turn not only for the state of michigan, i think

in detail now with larry levin. he's in the pits of the cme. david trainer says we are headed for a market rally next year no matter what happens with the fiscal cliff. and we will also be told what stocks he thinks are undervalued right now. let's start with larry. we're glad we picked up from the 150 point loss. i'm glad about that. looks like there won't be a santa claus rally this year. >> no, it doesn't look like it. we saw some pretty big down drafts today and earlier in the week. that's not what traders expect when we get into the last couple weeks of december. we usually have low volume rallies. we have done opposite. high volume drops in the market. today was a good example. recovered quite a bit but those points in the the chart have been made. the traders look at that and see the markets keep making lower lows and that makes them want to sell into the market and not buy it. shibani: david, i want to get your thoughts, you know, despite what's going on in and around the beltway, the gridlock that exists, you're still a believer in these markets. you believe in the markets forging

was an effective method of obtaining information. senator's john mccain, dianne feinstein and carl levin are asking the head of sony pictures to correct the record. we believe you have an obligation to state the role of torture in the hunt for osama bin laden is not based on the facts, but rather part of the film's fictional narrative. let's turn to the director of the aclu national security project. thank you so much for coming on the show. >> thank you for having me. >> the opening scene depicts the torture of a detainee. later the detainee supplies a piece of information during a meal with his interrogators. do you think the film misleads people on the hunt for bin laden, does it not provide sufficient context? >> i think the film certainly starts out with the claim that it's based on fact and it leaves the strong but entirely false impression that torture led to bin laden. and we know that that is false from the people who have reviewed the cia's records. senator's feinstein, levin and mccain are amongst the senate intelligence community personnel who reviewed millions of pages of cia documents
